What's an autosomal DNA test?

Kinkofa’s Roots Discovery Kit provides autosomal DNA analysis.

Autosomal DNA tests analyze the DNA from both parents to provide you info about your maternal and paternal ancestry dating back over the last ~500 years. It also has the power to identify relatives within a few generations, such as siblings, cousins, grandparents, etc.

This makes us different from other DNA tests designed for people of the African Diaspora that analyze mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) and Y-DNA (Y chromosome DNA).

mtDNA and Y-DNA tests provide information about a person's maternal or paternal ancestry respectively, they only provide information about a single line of ancestry and do not connect you to relatives.

Is this private and secure?

Our process is private, secure, and designed to protect your privacy at every step.

We DO NOT and will not share your sample or results with insurance companies, employers, law enforcement, or any other third parties.

What is CLIA certified?

We partner with a CLIA-certified Lab (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments).

This means they have to meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications and submit themselves to regular inspections.
